Central Business District Foundation (CBDF)

This 501(c)3 entity has been formed by the CBDA Board of Directors to support CBDX's "X Scholarship" fund for Princess Anne High School seniors participating in CBDA's annual Internship Day program and to provide gifts to local non-profits. The CBDX scholarship program has awarded several thousand dollars to participants. In addition to contributing to the enrichment of our community, one of the goals of the Foundation is to increase public awareness of the scholarship program. Contributions to CBDF are tax deductible and may be made on this page or mailed to CBDF, One Columbus Center, Suite 611, Virginia Beach, VA 23462. For more information about the X Scholarship or CBDF, please contact CBDA at 490-7812 or connect@cbda.net.

The X Scholarship

The X Scholarship, established in 2014, awards Princess Anne High School seniors with funds to supplement the costs of higher education. Scholarships are awarded each year during the Central Business District Association's annual Internship Day luncheon. Scholarship funds are generated through contributions from CBDX, CBDA and their members, along with donations from those supporting this cause. Donations to the X Scholarship fund have increased each year, allowing CBDX to enlarge the size of the awards as well as the number of recipients. Recipients are selected through an application process focused on students who demonstrate a passion for our region, particularly Virginia Beach, and the opportunities for growth here.
